Epoch Wars is an immersive battle that is danced between competing visions of the future. Set in a present where humans are attempting to grapple with the enormity of our extreme and monstrous impact on the planet.
A collaboration between The International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) and Live Art duo Pony Express (Loren Kronemeyer and Ian Sinclair), the work takes inspiration from the raging debate in scientific and academic communities to classify the new/current geological epoch. Epoch Wars invites audience to physically, emotionally and spatially engage with the three major frontrunners of this ideological battlefield: the Anthropocene, Capitalocene and Cthulucene.
This work will be an immersive experience where performers encourage the them to physically enact and develop the various Epochs.
